Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

            I was thinking...

            AK74Ms are said to be cheaper to manufacture no?

            If so, why the f*** are we still using AK74s with wood furniture? When we could be using the 74Ms that offer more versatility???

            Why not buy rifles from Russia's reserves?? We would only need like, 80-90 thousand..Perhaps we might see them in 2015??? I know there isnt a huge difference between the two, but it just seems smarter to have the 74Ms...
            Also, here is a picture of the Great Leader with his people

              I will take the wood furniture over the synthetic everytime (maybe I am a purist).....you want folded stock then nothing like an underfolder (with wood grip and front upper and lower). The M model does have some improvements (easier grenade launcher, thicker dust cover, some minor internal change, and US style picatinny rails on some).

              The wood gives the AK its soul and character since its unique and alive.....the black its for tacticool guys.

                Its not about looking tacticool or traditional in the end, its about whats best for the soldiers on the ground, and what they would prefer..Its really not much. If the M has improvements and no cons then why even keep the wood furniture versions around? It wouldn't really cost much, depending on the deal Moscow is willing to accept...Besides, if we were to manufacture our own, wood wouldn't be the way to go..synthetic, I believe, would be cheaper.
                What Armenia needs to do is slowly build up and create a Ministry of Defense Industry to rival Azerbaijan, and manufacture AK-74Ms under license. Maybe even some K-3s instead???

                I saw in an article, that this was proposed to the government, and was being considered. We have the ideas and designers, we just need to get the factories and machines...Tacticool and unnecessary gear would be, stuff like tactical gloves and glasses. Its just not necessary.



                Black isn't for the tacticool guys, black is for the professionals

                Some articles on the defense industry: http://en.ria.ru/military_news/20130...s--------.html

                "With the adoption of this program, we are taking an important step to neutralize all possible military threats to Armenia's security," the secretary of the National Security Council, Artur Baghdasarian, said on December 13. "Yerevan will not only get hold of modern armaments but also develop the domestic defense industry."

                Seems as if they were either bluffing, or just couldn't properly allocate the funds for the projects within the still progressing modernization time frame, already 4 years in. (1-2 more years to go)

                    One thing about side folding syntactic stocks that I have heard is that they do not make a good hammer.....with the wood you can break rocks or.....no problem.

                    Also when side folded (even wood) it gets in the way of te trigger a little for right handed people because the AK was designed for us lefties
